For the reader who is interested in delving deeper into the theory, as well as design and application of metallic rectifiers, this Appendix contains a classified bibliography for such study.

The classification is divided into four parts. The first part of the classification contains references to theory as well as general material on metallic rectifiers. The remaining three parts cover references to the copper-oxide, magnesium-copper sulfide, and to the selenium rectifiers, respectively.
